I am hoping to update my "Timeline of War" Meta-Geeklist (found here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/25950) with games from 2008 and realize I only own a few that qualify.

Please add games that meet the following criteria:

(a) released for sale in 2008 (I know it will grow!)

(b) games depict or include scenarios that depict clearcut specific battles. (Although "Timeline of War" includes sublists for "campaigns" and "whole wars" for comfort's, it is primarily intended to be a CHRONOLGICAL LIST of battles of history that can be gamed.)

I'll use entries from this list to update ToW - but the ToW lists are all open and I would encourage you to add any that work to the appropriate sublist.

There were a lot of wargames released so far in 2008 but most seem to be wide-spectrum games covering whole wars or campaigns, not individual battles.

tnx

A nice remake of the old "Command" mag game. Typical high-quality ATO production values.

S&T game famous for its "carnage" markers on the flipside. Simple combat resolution system sans CRT.

Nice new line of mini-games with interesting mechanics. A battle that has, ahem..., been gamed before - but still a different treatment!

Operation Market Garden - Sept 17-25, 1944

This monster game covers just the northern drop zones in Operation Market Garden. It comes with lots of scenarios that range from a fews hours to dozens of hours and really gorgeous counters and maps.

Due to be out in August, an area-impulse game that is supposedly playable in 4 hours. An MMP remake of a Japanese game. Pre-ordered.

The Add item link is missing for me on the Bulge campaign geek list, so I'm adding the FAB: The Bulge game here.

The list it should be added to:

8. Board Game: Baptism at Bull Run [Average Rating:7.91 Unranked]

This one is due out in about a week. This battle covers the first major fight in the American Civil War, known as the Battle of First Bull Run, or ( Manassas ). This game follows the innovative block-and-maneuver designs of Bonaparte at Marengo, and Napoleon's Triumph, yet has its own unique ideas and twists imbedded into its rules and mechanics.

In early August there will be a 'kickoff' for the game on Cyberboard introducing the game, and pairing opponents up for friendly matches. Later there will be a Ladder and a Tournament.

This is the sixth game that I've been a playtester for, and I have quite enjoyed the 'tense battlefield experience' encountered with each game played/ ( battle fought ).
